Yes indeed you are wrong - the Atlantic 85 has conventional throttles that are not spring loaded.
Yes you are right that the Atlantic 85 does not have a conventional kill cord but then you are dealing with a highly trained, professional, crew, who know what exactly they are doing with a very experienced helmsman who never leaves their position and who will always have one hand on the throttles.
FI where is a "kill cord" on an Atlantic 85 but this is only fitted to the fourth crew member who sits in isolation at the rear and this will only light up a warning light on the helm when activated.
